One Hundred Thousand welcomes from your family to you
We of the Clan Lyon and associated familes welcome you. Our family is rich in its heritage and strong in its bond to each other. Members of our clan are to be found all the way from the Castle Glamis, in Aberdeenshire to every corner of the world. The Clan Lyon Association of Canada has been founded on two basic principles, to bring members of the clan together and to foster a spirit of kinship that has for centuries been the foundation of our clan family.
Perhaps your interest lie in discovering more about your ancestry, or in tracing a distant family connection. We share these interests and others with you.
We are proud of the efforts, accomplishments and character of our heritage and look forward to meeting you and sharing these with you.
We invite you to become a member and be part of our Scottish heritage here in Canada.
